The costs of the action against Constable Bailey were charged against  plaintiff. A. Rigley Fisher acted as  solicitor for Mr. Bailey.  The entertainment given in the Enderby Opera House last- Wednesday  and Thursday evening by local talent  under the direction of Mr. Macdonald  was a pleasant surprise to all who  were fortunate enough to attend.

"Enderby has often been spoken of as  the 'pay roll' town "-of the Valley.  This name is certainly justified to a  great extent when one takes into consideration the sums' paid out monthly by the Okanagan Saw Mills. This  company- employs on an average .from}  230 to 250 ..men in its camps" in the  woods and- around -the-mill at" Enderby, and pays,out,monthly. $18,000  and--$S0,000^ in wages, .- and 'to 'this  large" sums are "expended'^an'nually. in  camp ��������������������������� supplies.:i"\,This fwill'"giveVsome;  idea;,; what-/the"; Okanagan, Saw_Mills  'company' does" for,.'the,-northern'en :  of-the Okanagan; ; " '. ~ ' :- . ,'-  The-  lumber-' sawn   here "-finds.  -Enderby ships   in    from the North-   .  west about;,  a   carload of beef cattle  every month . or   so.   - -The price on - ���������������������������  hoof paid for   these'  b-jef cattle will'  run 18c or. 20c; some possibly as low"-  as 15o.

And there never was a  better satisfied audience. Mr. Clum  has a very pleasing delivery, and the  subjects he produces, at all times  most fascinating, are made doubly so  by the excellent picture films an^  stereoscopic views thrown upon th  canvass. To have travelled throug!  and .been in touch with much of the  country and many of the scene's  shown by Mr. Clum, makes one feel  the double pleasure of having  them flashed back upon the memory,  and with them comes recollections of  More honors have  Columbia apples,  ceived this week by  Bride from Hon.

Perhaps  they usually do; I am in no position  to judge, never having even been to  see one. But when it comes to pie-  eating competitions I assert that thisi  education is pernicious for children;  and it is indeed pitiful to think of  adults who could find entertainment  in such a degrading spectacle.

Perhaps all will not agree with us,  but after several,  yaars of close attention to facts   as   we   have found  them, we are convinced that the real  cause of the lack of development under such ideal    natural conditions is  the poor   business   methods  adopted  on the ranch and in marketing.     The'  'unlimited   market"   which   we hear  so much about, is no myth.     It is a  reality.     But ,to get into it, we must  have something worth while to o9er.  Our farmers have presented a picture  something like the   inexperienced old  businessman, who opened for business  with a dollar   stock   on   his shelves  and expected a thousand dollar business.      "Find' us the market, -and we  will raise the   stuff," has,.been their  cry...  But this, is   not business.- "If  the average' merchant were to follow  his     method    of. doing   business he  would   be    closed, by   the    sheriff in  thirty   days.- ���������������������������    To   attract buyers a  merchant must have the stock to sell,  and to get into-the unlimited market  of the coast and   the northwest, our  farmers must   do -what the farmers  and fruit men of all other successful  districts, have had   to - do���������������������������raise the  stuff; have a system in planting, harvesting and- "marketing, and co-operate as one man.^    As a   district we  have been   going.,to   market with a  basketful , when , the   market was demanding train loads.  ., Our faith -in    Enderby ..'-District is  hinged upon' these   conditions being  changed.   , .Tnist district: has been ,the  school for inexperience in: farming far  too"long.     .The .district__is not de':  veloped far- enough to be a school.'for  anyone in any-line   or   calling.   ;We  require experienced    hands     and.: experienced heads ;intevery"calling���������������������������particularly:, on the: farm land .fruit and]  poultry .ranch. -.' Money, in, the hands I  of Inexperience, will .accomplish very  little   in   the- development..of a disr  trict.     That we arerto receive an influx of   men   of..' experience,, in- fruit-,  raising,    poultry. - raising,   t dairying,  truck growing and diversified farming  we confidently believe.  And we   must   get .-right   down to  correct   thinking   in connection with  jthe land.     In recent   past years the  j prime motive-in connection" with our  ranching has been, to   buy-acres" and  sell again, "making half as-much again  in the turn-over.     And   doing little  or nothing   to   improve   the.;land-in  the   meantime.       This   is a ruinous  policy in the   long run���������������������������for the man  engaged in it.     To buy land and hold  -it^for^a^raise^withWr^ddlng   any-  thing to its value by way of improvement, may 'not be    dishonest, but it  is unfair���������������������������unfair   to the man himself  as well as the   district���������������������������and that we  have, as a district, learned to see the  evil of it we   are   firmly   convinced.  The good   days    for    Enderby District are    those   to    come-r-when the  value -of -an acre-will - be" based" upon  what it   is   actually   producing���������������������������not  capable of producing.     We will then  have less bush    land    held as an Investment,  and no land held by anyone that   is   not   earning something  in actual produce   for thc owner and  the District.     We will then have one  hundred families   on   the land where  one family now is.     Instead of having one acre cleared    and twenty in  bush, we will see ten clewed to every  acre in bush.     The District will then  attain the importance it is justly entitled to assume.  Bank of Montreal  Established 1817  Capital, $16,000,000        , ^   ,l������������������,000,0f.  Hon. President, Rt.

A neat cottage occupies a    pleasant    spot    among the the lake-to  Here a beginning is made in the  shape of a house, and several acres  have been slashed and cleared.  Beyond this ., again, Albert Barney  is making a start on his homestead,  by getting 5 acres ready for crop  next season.  Coming back to a trail leading to  Loon Lake, one ,comes upon the home  of W.  Waterous.       Here    energy and  hard work have  made great changes  in a very short time.     From an unbroken  forest,    on   a    gentle    .slope,  from which a magnificent view of thc  valley    towards    Grindrod nnd Mara  is presented to the eye, Mr. Waterous  has made quite a clearing.     A number of    carpenters    were    busy on  a  large residence of the bungalow type,  so popular in the    mountain regions  of California.     It is a building 34x44  and a large    kitchen    attached as  a  lean-to.        The   walls-_ are   made, of  cedar logs, and the inside lined with  lumber.     In the main living room is  one of those   big    hospitable-looking  fire  places,    built    of    cement  brick.  Thc Red Rope roof makes a pleasant  change against the dark green of the  surrounding    timber.       Farther back  stands   the barn,    18x30,  roofed  with  galvanized iron;    also chicken houses  and hog pens..    After enjoying a cup  of coffee with Mr.   Jocohs, who is as  jolly and hospitable as he is big, we  made our way to Mr. Brown's.   Here  work is    just   beginningf       But Mr.  Brown  has    the    goods to start  on.  He is    situated    on   the     bank.of a  stream  as clear as    crystal,  and has  the finest kind of   truck garden soil,  while adjacent is a sandy loam hillside, making ideal fruit land.-  Passing on, one comes to the holdings of Messrs. Gosnell and Chapman  ���������������������������and if anybody deserves credit for  energy and' perseverance these men  certainly do. Unaided they cut a  trail.for over a mile through heavy  burnt timber to - their places on the  east-side of Loon Lake. One of the  prettiest spots in Northern Okanagan  and one that very few people know  about. .And it lies so close to the  city of Enderby. - Looking at 'it from  about,,the    centre,    one would  judge  and Useful  Articles  For Children and Grown-ups.

GaSH  BARONESS BURDETT-COUTTS  The World's Greatest Woman Philanthropist  Angela Georgiana, Baroness Burdett-Coutts, the lady bountiful of England, one of the partners in the great banking house of Coutts���������������������������second only,  in wealth, to the Bank of England���������������������������and one of the richest peeresses in the  ldncdom, has had ,a romantic and rcm-prkable career in her ninety-one  years. She was a close friend of Queen Victoria, and Edward VII. said of  her:    "Next to my mother, she is the most wonderful woman in England."  She was the daughter of Sir Francis Burdett and Sophia Coutts; her  maternal grandfather, Thomas Coutts, died ignoring his children, and leaving his great fortune to his second wife, who was Miss Mellon, a well-known  actress.   The widow later married the Duko of St. Albans, whose relatives  =ti:eated=h er=_w i th^rid i cu 1 o^and^con tern p t=_f o r��������������������������� hpr���������������������������verbal- inaccuraciGS,-her-   quaint speeches and her inability to master the social code of her set. Her  will revealed her revenge when it was found that every penny of her fortune  ���������������������������went to her step-granddaughter, Angela Burdett, then twenty-three, with tha  understanding that she should add a hyphen and Coutts to her name.  Then Miss Burdett-Coutts, in 1S37, the year Victoria became Queen, begaa  her life of benevolence and beneficence, limiting herself to no one phase of  helpfulness; but wherever she could benefit humanity her heart and her  purse were open. She built and endowed St. Stephen's Church, Westminster;  endowed three colonial-bishoprics, secured the government adoption of  traveling inspectors' of schools, gave funds for the topographic survey of  Jerusalem, aided*.,e*migrants_.on a large scale, established a home for women,  fitted out -hundreds^of-boys'for^the navy, suggested tho formation of the   East London Weavers' Association, erected model tenements, aided Sir  Thomas Broolco in his work in Sarawak, helped tho starving fishermen of  Cape Clear Island and the poor of London ancl Scotland, organized the  Turkish Compassionate Fund to help tho peasantry during tho Russo-  Turkish war, und for nearly seventy years has devoted herself to charities.  In 1871 thc Queen made'.-Miss Coutts a peeress, and ten years later, when  cho was sixty-soven years of age, she married W. L. Ashmcad-Bartlett, a  young American���������������������������now a member of Parliament���������������������������thirty-seven years her  junior, settling on him an annuity of $250,000 a year. Surprise became ,  consternation, and, later, genuine hostility, whon it became known that tho  Baroness, after nursing young Bartlett through a long illness incident to his  work on her Turkish charity, had married him.

He  held service in one ��������������������������� of the homes, as  was his custom, and the service concluded a purse' of" ?9.50 was handed  him, for his own    personal use.   The  next day,  Father  Jeanott walked to  Salmon Arm.       He    saw the dreary  cabin of A. McDonald, half a mile ofl  the road as he climbed the sand hill,  andwent to    the    cabin.     He found  McDonald ill    in   bed���������������������������lung trouble���������������������������  you know.     Father   Jeanott spent a  few hours    with . him,   to cheer and  comfort.     Then   he    passed on.   The  purse of $9.50 was left with McDonald  with 50c added for good measure.  Father Jeanott went east about a  year ago on account of failing health  and was living in retirement at the  time of his .death.  ���������������������������MUSK-MELON  POSSIBILITIES  Poultry  ENDERBY PRESS  PubHsk������������������d matry Thursday mt.

C.  vVTOO MUCmOPA GOOD^THING  Ten years ago;much of the,rich.celery, land" about Armstrong was in the  bog,-and tliere���������������������������wa^^rowing?upon it  nothing -but'cat-tails' ;ahd~ pussy-willows/" About this   time.a Chinaman  or two got hold of .a few acres of the  bog land and   drained it.   ' The land  was then turned/over   and sweetened  inthe sunshine,   and . a few rows of  celery planted. - From - that small beginning there    started at Armstrong  an industry'that has proved the most  lucrative of- the district.     The celery  of Armstrong"   is   the   finest in the  world, and there   is   not,a pound of  it grown that  joes not find.a ready-  market.     In    addition  to ��������������������������� the celery  crop, Armstrong    sends out annually  several   hundred ' carloads    of   other  vegetables, most of which are grown  on this low land that some years ago"  was considered   too wet for anything  but to pasture   cattle on.     And the  Chinese=did==^most=ofj=the*=ivegetable  growing up to within a year or two.  Now it is divided.     But. the Chinese  control the lion's share of it.  From an angel of helpfulness, the  Chinaman has become a menace to  the growers of Armstrong. This  season these yellow men have established a selling organization of their  own, and ..have. _secured__.control, ';by_  lease or otherwise of several hundred  acres of the most valuable garden  land. Last week a Chinaman actually bought eight acres of this  land, paying $745 an- acre therefor.  This was the first actual sale of land  to a Chinaman direct, and it resulted  in a monster protest being issued by  the citizens of the neighboring town.  Land owners in the vicinity of  Armstrong have entered into the following bond agreement: "Whereas,  we citizens and farmers of Armstrong  and municipality at an open meeting  assembled have unanimously passed  the following resolution, and owners  of land are agreeable thereto.  Then follows this request to the  Premier of B. C. "We therefore request your government immediately  to take steps to pass legislation preventing Chinese and Orientals owning  farm lands, and to further press the  exclusion act, and that, your government will press the question with the  Dominion Government."  The bond provides a penalty of $200  per acre if broken; that the owners  of land within the city and vicinity  of Armstrong sign this bond for five  years that whilst we are owners of  farm lands we will not sell to Chinese,   and    that    after   the    present]  There is big profit in growing cantaloupes, or musk-melons. The Okanagan climate is particularly favorable for growing this delicious fruit,  and,yet, every -musk-melon sold in.  the valley is ��������������������������� shipped in from the  coast. Cantaloupe growing is' a very  lucrative employment in Ontario. By  starting the plants under glass, and  transferring them- to the open about  May 20th, fruit is ready for ..picking  about "August. 10th. After that"date  continuing until". frost, the-crop .is  usually, heavy. ._: Two thousand '.dollars from four acres'of, melons is.the  return given in;,one .'.instance". -.'Between |400"and"' $500-" per acre in an-"  other;,and;$250^ [net' is counted on  from year to year.'-; One advantage  of this crop is thatf it does not-de:  plete the soil.  ���������������������������   .NOTICE"'   '      ,-���������������������������  - We have taken over the entire interest of A.

Martin    Burrell has become minister of    agriculture he has  taken an.especially active interest in  the promotion  of the seed branch of  the department.       Hc  has developed  the work of improving the seed of the  Dominion in many ways.     Hon,  Sidney Fisher while minister, always objected  to  co-operating  with  the  pro-  vinvial governments    in a good  s?ed  j campaign.       Mr.    Burrell,    following  [out the general policy ol the govern-  I ment of   co-operating   with    the provincial administrations, has arranged  to give prizes for field crop competitions.     This work   in  the past year  has doubled, and prizes are given.,;  Tho objects of these competitions  is to oiler encouragement to the production and use of good seed more  adequate to the importance of the  grain growing-industry and to stimulate greater interest in field agriculture. Until recently no special attempt had been made by agricultural  societies to recognize by prizes the  farmers' practices in respect to grain  growing. Thc fall fairs and large  exhibitions were not adequate to giving recognition to growing seed grain  and in many places, particularly in  the west,   the   fairs    were held at a  Ladies' Wear  Dry Goods,   Novelties  Groceries  Fulton Block, Enderby  Peas, 2 cans,   -   -   - 25c  Beans, 2 cans,    -   -   - 25c  Corn, 2 cans,   -   -   - 25e  Tomatoes,   straight   - 15c  Pine Apple,  extra fine, 15c  And Here are some Regulars that will Interest You:  Oat Meal Toilet Soap, EIGHT CAKES " - - - - 25c  Sugar, per sack, - . - - - "- -to -' - - 1.25  Tea,' in bulk, quality cannot be excelled,:- - - 30c, 40c and 50c lb  Corn Flakes,-THREE packages for-  :;- "- -:"   '". :~- ';   " 25c  The Most Complete Range of Christmas  Novelties,.

The organizataion and management  of the competitions was handed over  to the provincial Departments ,_of Agriculture last year, support from the  seed branch being given in the form  of subventions amounting to two-  thirds of the money paid out in  prizes, up to ?50 for each of tho three  kinds of crops in a competition held  by one agricultural society. While  the provincial Departments of "Agriculture are now responsible for organizing and judging the competitions, the seed branch district officers  in Quebec, the Maritime Provinces  and British Columbia'are assisting in  the work.  Through the provincial departments  of education Mr. Burrell has inaugurated a plan to encourage the using  of better seeds and the education of  children in noxious weeds. Samples  of good seeds and noxious weeds are  being sent to many high and technical schools throughout the Dominion. At present an important enquiry is being made by the seed  branch into the -quality of seed used  by farmers all over Canada. ' So far  no less than 2,057 tests of seeds from  e -ery province have been made. The  tests so far go to show that only  about one farmer in five in Canada  uses good seed, a situation which  Mr. Burrell is very  prove.  woodshed; for sale cheap.
